Research Interest: Effects of butadiene and its metabolites on the somatic and germ cells of rodents, in vitro study on the effects of genotoxins and reproductive toxins in human lymphocytes and sperm, flavonoids modulate comet assay responses to food mutagens in human cells. She worked on male-mediated F1 effects in mice exposed to X-rays or chemicals or to a combination of both agents, estimated mutagenic effects induced in somatic and germ cells of laboratory mice (in vivo tests) after combined action of X-rays and chemicals occurring in the environment. She studied the antioxidants properties of flavonoid and catalase on the DNA damage induced in human sperm by thyroid hormone and noradrenaline. She was involved in biomonitoring studies of DNA damage measured by comet assay in leucocytes of blood donors and in sperm of pregnant women’s partners. Recently, she worked on the effects of phthalates on the male germ cells and the development of the offspring of males treated before mating. Moreover, she studied the effect of subchronic exposure to low doses of X-rays and endocrine disruptors on the quantity and quality of spermatozoa as well as the effects on the pre- and postnatal surviving and development of the offspring of exposed males. She studied the DNA damage in leucocytes of nuclear medicine workers. Presently, she studies the radioprotective effect of resveratrol and lycopene against the damage induced by irradiation in germ and somatic cells of mice.

Dr Leong Yin-Hui is a researcher in National Poison Centre of Malaysia, Universiti Sains Malaysia (USM). She obtained her PhD in Food Safety in 2011 from USM. She had served as a post-doctoral fellow in USM for 3 years and has more than 3 years of working experiences in pharmaceutical, cosmetic and food industries.

Dr Leong’s research interests have been focused on the public health, food safety, food analysis and new drug compounds or contaminants discovery in clinical, environmental and food matrices. Currently, she is actively involves in the research of persistent organic pollutants (POPs), for example dioxins and dioxin-like PCBs in human breast milks, food and environmental samples; investigation of the efficacy of various plant extracts in antifungal and aflatoxins inhibition properties and other researches related to food and nutritional security. The outcomes of the studies have been published in both the national and international journals. 

           Dr Leong also provide advisory services and training to students, industries or government sectors on Food Safety, GMP (Good Manufacturing Practice), LC-MS/MS instrumentation as well as contract research on demand. As a food scientist, Dr Leong knows very well how important of safe and high quality food for mankind and how to prevent deterioration or improve the quality of food. Food safety is considered to be a basic requirement of food quality and it involves the safe and acceptance levels of various natural or chemical contaminants which can render a food injurious to health leading to acute or chronic disease.

Research Interest: Risk Assessment Of Natural Or Chemical Contaminants, Food Safety And Public Health.
